for t and saving detroit and ending the war. all these things there is a tremendous record of accomplishment that people sort of glossed over in their eagerness to talk about the mood. and people will focus on those issues and the choice that we face in this election because the two candidates and two parties could not be more different. >> poll after poll have told us [inaudible] and what would you say is the undecided voters right now, are the three basic differences between the democratic party and the republican party? >> well, i would say that the democratic party is really on the side of families and working families. it's certainly on the side of women. and i think it's positions on children and education a long-term investment in the future of this country are the president has been incredibily strong on that with the race to the top and early childhood education. and i think in foreign policy he has kept us safe and ended the war in iraq and i think that really as the first lady was talking about, we have gotten to know him. and i think has demonstrated the charact

advocated doing nothing. and what did mitt romney say? you all know this, he said let detroit go bankrupt. [crowd booing] in strong contrast, president obama took action, putting together a rescue team, demanding real change and real sacrifice. from everyone involved, from management, from labor, from suppliers, from debt holders, from dealers. everybody involved. it was not universally popular, but it was absolutely right. [cheers and applause] president obama's strong leadership saved a million jobs. since june of 2009, this industry has added a quarter of a million jobs and the auto industry is thriving again. [crowd cheering] these are good middle class jobs in glass, in plastic, in steel. jobs making things for an economy built to last. and mitt romney's record, at bain capital the corporate buyout firm he founded too often has made their money not by building companies up but by taking them apart. and too often the workers ended up in the streets even as romney and his partners made millions of dollars. earlier this week, we celebrated labor day. people forget what this holiday and

[ applause ] barack obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles and courage." he doesn't just do what is easy, he does what is hard. he does what is right. my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, his family and the generation they inspired to fight for the america they believed in. now it's up to a new generation our children's generation to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barack obama is only president because you worked for him because you believed in him because uconn vinceed your parents to vote for him. young people have always led america towards a brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008 and if you show the same spirit in this election as you d

. we are making things again. i've met workers in detroit and toledo who feared they'd never build another american car. today they can't build them fast enough, because we reinvented a dying auto industry that's back on top of the world. i've worked with business leaders who are bringing jobs back to america, not because our workers make less pay, but because we make better products. because we work harder and smarter than anyone else. i signed trade agreements that are helping our companies sell more goods to millions of new customers. goods that are stamped with three proud words -- "made in america."
